    LOL, ordered the $29 3G dock direct from Apple online and they shipped it to me from Hong Kong! I wondered why delivery was taking so long.

    Before I bought this I saw a bunch on Ebay for a OEM Apple 3G dock for half the price but the problem was it was from a seller in Hong Kong shipping to the US. Now I'm thinking Apple is getting it from the same company. So my purchase from Apple is still coming from Hong Kong and I'm paying twice as much. Hahaha

    yeah, did you pay for shipping? I bought 2 docks on apple.com and went with the free standard shipping on like 7/12... I saw 5-8 days and figured most ground shipping isn't that slow and that I'd have the docks by Friday... Then I get an email saying it shipped from HK and that expected delivery was 7/23!! The 5-8 days was business days, ick!! I got the docks on 7/21 but still, I never expected it to take that long!
